“Internet crazies” is a description PM Ralph E. Gonsalves chooses to describe people who bring the truth to the attention of Vincentian people. Of course it’s not all truth, because the real Internet crazies are those that come and post false worded comments, and banter with those presenting what they believe to be true, and in doing so use all sorts of lies and pretences.
I believe those people, all of whom use false names, are paid collaborators, in bed with the ULP hierarchy. Some believe that many of the comments and opinions attacking the truth are in fact written by Gonsalves. If that is true, then he himself must be described as an “Internet crazy”.
We have to remember the history of Gonsalves, most of which is repressed, most of which people are frightened to present. Some have already recorded his lifetime struggle with Marxism and are awaiting his death to tell the true story. But told it will be. Not his version; our version and the version of all those that claim to have been wronged by him.
Being chucked out of Barbados and being banned from travelling to several Caribbean countries at one time or another. Dozens of old Vincentian ladies describing him as a commie in the letter and comment section of The Vincentian newspaper of the time; they hated him. I have copies of all the commentaries from the newspapers of that time.
Every week the antics of the MNU were recorded and it made our parents and grandparents angry. They wanted absolutely nothing to do with communism, or Marxism.
I firmly believe that Gonsalves in the 70s was a newspaper columnist crazy, and if the Internet had been available then, he would of been an “Internet raving lunatic”. It was his writings in Barbados newspapers that got him into trouble and he had to run for his life, carried back to St. Vincent under a tarp on a boat commanded by Captain King of Bequia. (Some say it was a woman’s accusations that made him run).
So when this white man tells us he is the blackest man in Saint Vincent, he is probably telling the truth, because I do not think he was talking about colour; I think he was talking about his beliefs and behaviour.
Remember he told us in Parliament “If I work obeah, I only work obeah for the Lord”. Now as a Christian society, we all know you cannot work obeah for God or our Lord Jesus, so I have always assumed he was talking about the blackest demon of all, the Lord of Darkness, Satan, the Devil.
